THE WHITE HOUSE BOYS by Roger Dean Kiser


ROGER DEAN KISER - Child Advocate

The White House Boys   (other books by Roger Dean Kiser)

Published author Roger Dean Kiser's stories take you into the heart of a child abandoned by his family and abused by the system responsible for his care. Through his stories, he relives the sadness and cruelty of growing up an orphan in the early 1950s.

Today, Kiser lives in Brunswick, Georgia with his wife Judy where he continues to write and publishing his heartfelt short stories. Unknowingly at first and by the power of the Internet, Kiser's short stories have touched millions.

In the vein of Mark Twain, Roger Dean Kiser's collection of almost 1,000 stories has captured the drama and emotion of not only his childhood, but also his current day tales. Kiser's short stories carry with them strong images and feelings that search out and find that common thread which connects each of us to our own emotions.

2. What got you into writing?
I’ve always dabbled in writing, even as a kid. I remember writing song lyrics especially. I went to college, not knowing what to major in, and eventually majored in English. I didn’t let my poor SAT scores stop me. In college, I especially enjoyed writing poetry. And then I just stopped writing for nearly twenty years, frustrated that I couldn’t write any coherent sentence. That all changed seven years ago when I came to my new teaching position. I wrote a play with my students for us to perform. From that point on, I was hooked. Now I’ve written 11 plays and 3 novels with a 4th in the works.

Energizethe Workplace in 5 Steps for Maximal Productivity Gary Epler
Did you know that only 30% of employees are fully engaged in their work? Did you know that 10% of employees actually try to harm the company? These are grim numbers for both employers and employees. Energize people and turn the disengaged into a productive force. How? First, begin with a Level-10 Energy day. What’s a Level-10 Energy day? “It's like being on top of the world with no worries. It's doing anything you want without stress. It's the feeling of unlimited creativity and enjoying every minute of the day. It's the best feeling in the world. It's a way of life!” Follow the steps to success including the right amount of sleep, find the exact exercise, eat special foods for energy, and more. Second, turn work into an energybuilder. Some people are able to do this naturally. For most, it’s a learned response. The good news is that almost everyone, no matter the job they do, can learn to create ener…
